The loan they will take out will benefit people with small businesses, including Jeaneth. She says this is the first time she has been a part of Pro Mujer, joining at the invitation of her friend, who is a member of the institution.
Currently, she has a business selling clothing. She says that she started this business several years ago, through the encouragement of her parents.
The loan she will take out now is to increase her working capital by purchasing clothing, which she will buy from wholesalers and later sell at her stand. This form of work allows her to generate income for supporting her family as best she can, as she is in a common-law relationship and has two children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the training in health and credit.

This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
